Sometimes you quit when things aren’t working…and sometimes, life forces a quit on you.
SOMA Breath founder, Renegade Pharmacist Niraj Naik, faced just that when life dealt him with a crippling illness that forced quits upon him. Quitting with no safety net led him to have to figure out entrepreneurship in a hurry and find ways to heal his body and his mind in the process.
His journey back to health led to him developing a revolutionary style of breathwork that can help anyone who needs just a little more peace in their lives.
Have you ever felt stuck or unhappy in your job, so you up and quit and went to work somewhere else doing the same thing - only to realize that you were equally as unfulfilled in the new place?
Author, podcaster and all-around inspirational badass Steph Gaudreau did, and it was a great wake-up call to her that she needed to quit her entire career. This led her to enact a beautifully textbook strategic quit that included identifying and facing down several fears.
She points out that it’s not about being fearless, it’s about taking action despite those fears to get to your ultimate goal.
Many kids dream of becoming professional athletes when they grow up, assuming that it would be a dream job that they could never imagine leaving before they were forced out.
Which is what makes former Major League Baseball pitcher Doug Nickle’s story all the more incredible. He had the dream job and quit it - not because he could no longer play, but because he realized he was more than just a baseball player. He wanted to determine what success was on his own terms, with no conditions.
It’s a great story for anyone struggling with a dream job that may no longer be *their* dream.
If you’ve ever been hit by a massive health crisis, you may have experienced being given medical advice by trusted sources that just didn’t feel right to you. Dr. Brenda Walding had that same experience when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and she realized that to save her own life, she'd have to quit handing over supreme authority over her body and start listening to her heart.
Through her journey she was able to quit making decisions out of fear, quit living according to others’ ideas of success and happiness, and found a way to turn cancer into a divine opportunity. It’s a beautiful story that should empower anyone facing their own health issues to start their own self-directed healing.
